Thursday's Thoughts

This week has been the week of zero sleep! I am so tired, but can't seem to get my mind to stop racing come bedtime. I finally resorted to downing half a bottle of cold medicine last night because I was so desperate to sleep! Since I'm running on iced coffee, I apologize in advance if this post is all over the place.

Lately, I've been really into painting my nails. My most recent look is a base color of blank slate by sonia kashuk topped with Sephora by OPI Flurry Up Top Coat. I love the purplish-gray hue of the polish and the glitter just makes it fun!

I finally purchased The Help and I'm so excited to read it. I was going to start last night, but of course my Nook was out of battery. Hopefully I finish the book before the movie leaves theaters.

My blog & IRL friend Leeann over at Join the Gossip is hosting a Favorite Things swap. It's been awhile since I've done a swap so I'm excited about participating in this one. The spending limit is a reasonable $20 before shipping so sign up if you'd like to participate too! The deadline to sign up is tomorrow.

Chris & I are open to a couple of different possibilities that could lead to big change for us. No details and really no clear sense of what is coming, but I'm excited for the possibility of any sort of change. If one thing is for certain, it would be that change is inevitable. I am prepared to welcome it with open arms!

One good thing about C & I is that we are weathering quite the storm in every department of our lives, except for our relationship with each other. We have grown stronger & more committed to creating the life we both dream of, and doing it together. I find that to be a tiny nugget of positivity and hope in this tough personal & internal battle I'm struggling through. Okay, that sounds quite dramatic, and it really isn't that bad. :)

A big thank you to my sweet friend Janna over at Happiness is a Journey for sending me an uplifting card this week. It made me smile!

PS - I tried, but I can no longer watch Bachelor Pad 2. It is too terrible and as long as Kasey & Vienna continue to be there, I can't take it. They are truly disgusting human beings. And I'm trying to be nice.

PPS - I'll be MIA from the blog this weekend because it's finally time for my BFF's bachelorette party! I'll be back next week with all of the details and plenty of pictures!

Remember this little saying from Estee Lauder...."Live, Change, Grow!"

Thanks for the sweet comment. I know we'll both get through this challenging period but sometimes it seems it'll never end :-)
